I seen the picture on the news and I think it's horrible. Just another slam at the republicans and nothing will be said by the media. There will be no outcry against it since it's Sarah Palin.

That's horrible. I'm no fan of Sarah Palin but I think displays like that are just tacky and in extremely poor taste.

Good grief....some people are tasteless and have no class at all....Just because You don´t agree with Sarah Palin´s views or things she says...doesn´t give anybody the right to do anything like that.....thas bulls........sorry for the word....You know what I mean

This "work of art" is a frightening display of violence, to me. Is it possible that the media does not want to dignify it with national publicity? I hope that is the case.

I am not voting for Sarah Pallin. However, she is an intelligent and articulate spokesperson for millions of American voters. (She was very badly handled, I think, by McCains' staff.) She is a successful, articulate and extremely popular governor. Americans have more than one political party. When Sarah Pallin recently gave her first policy speech -- it was excellent! (It was her speech on the role of the federal government for families of children with special needs.) I look forward to watching Sarah Pallin as a political leader for decades to come.

This stupid, ugly display of gross behavior is an attack on all intelligent and decent people.

Just my opinion. I respect your right to your own opinion.

I avoid all posts about politics but just wanted to point out...this article (of a similar nature) that was posted earlier...

All of it is extremely distasteful....
